27. KING WOMAN
While a band like Bloody Hammers focuses on the woodsy goth of the East Coast, King Woman is all about the yawning goth of California. Both the north and south of the state are represented in the band’s music — the clammy, overcast experimental side of their hometown San Francisco, but also ample doses of Los Angeles’s sun-razed wasteland. The perfect band for a long drive heading to something sinister.
